Two Wrestlers Advance In AEW Women's Eliminator Tournament

Three competitors remain

The AEW Women's Eliminator tournament is winding down, as three competitors remain following a pair of matches on Sunday night.

In the US semi-final, Thunder Rosa defeated Riho. The finish came suddenly, after Rosa blocked a strike, and then delivered a legsweep takedown into a cradle pin.

Rosa will go on to face Nyla Rose in the US final on Monday Night, in a match that airs on YouTube.

In the Japan final, Ryo Mizunami defeated Yuka Sakazaki. After a long bout with lots of false finishes, Mizunami finished Sakazaki with a delayed falcon arrow drop.

Mizunami faces the winner of Nyla Rose vs. Thunder Rosa on Wednesday night's Dynamite: The Crossroads. That winner goes on to face Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women's title at Revolution on Sunday, March 7.

The updated card for Wednesday night's "Crossroads" edition of Dynamite is as follows:

* Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet vs. Shaquille O'Neal and Jade Cargill

* AEW Women's Eliminator Tournament final: US winner (either Thunder Rosa or Nyla Rose) vs. Ryo Mizunami

* Face of the Revolution ladder match qualifier: Max Caster vs. 10

* FTR and Tully Blanchard vs. Jurassic Express

* Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Five, John Silver, and Alex Reynolds vs. Matt Hardy, Private Party, and The Hybrid 2

* A "press conference" from Chris Jericho and MJF

* The first AEW appearance of Paul Wight
